Dagger tattoos are a classic tattoo design, but they differ from the other knife tattoos out there.

A dagger is a knife with the primary purpose and use of being a weapon, other knives have the sole purpose of cutting and slicing- not killing!! Unlike a dagger tattoo a knife tattoo has a more realistic feel and they are commonly inspired by knives used on a daily basis like a kitchen knife or a small pocket knife. A great tattoo for any budding chef or just about anyone who likes sharp implements knife tattoos are a creative alternative to traditional dagger tattoos!

With an old school flair a knife tattoo can be done very similar to a classic dagger design with banners and roses but still have its own unique look and style. A little more personal than a dagger tattoo, knife tattoos can be inspired by a persons work or hobbies. If you're interested in a knife tattoo, but don't want to go down the old school dagger route then have a look at these 20 trusty knife tattoos and be inspired!
